Abstract

This paper presents work in progress regarding utilization of social network information for mobile applications. Primarily a number of challenges are identified, such as how to mine data from multiple social networks, how to integrate and consolidate social networks, and how to manage semantic information for mobile applications. The challenges are discussed from a semantic Web perspective using a driving scenario as motivation.
